Default Cam replacement

Hello Gents,
I am rebuilding a 1981 ford F100 with a 4.9L I6 carbureted 1 barrel.
The problem I am having is the new cam has so much horizontal movement it makes a huge rattle. I mic the old cam and it mics out the same. Can anyone give me some ideas on this?
Thank you for your time.

Is it possible one of your cam bearings isn't seated properly? Maybe something happened during the removal or install.
